Why the Missional Movement Will Fail

In this Exponential 2013 podcast, Mike Breen and Sally Breen talks about why the Missional movement will fail. There has been much talk over the last few years about missional movements. Sadly, for all of the discussion and effort, the missional movement is destined to fail if it is not accompanied with a simple but significant way of making disciples who can make disciples who look like Jesus. It simply isn't sustainable. In this workshop, we'll look at the ways in which a discipling movement is always the undergirding foundation for any missional movement of lasting force and momentum.
